TUMORI is the oldest Italian cancer journal.
TOL is designated to increase the knowledge and diffusion of 
articles published inside TUMORI.
Visitors are encouraged to send comments on the articles 
directly to the authours or to TOL.

TUMORI is the Official Journal of Societŕ Italiana di Cancerologia 
(SIC) and Associazione Italiana di Oncologia Medica (AIOM)
and is property of the Istituto Nazionale per lo studio e la 
Cura dei Tumori (National Cancer Institute),

OncoLink Press Release: July 23, 1996 - 
The University of Pennsylvania Cancer Center

We would like to inform the Internet community of the 
preliminary (Beta 2) release of OncoLink's hypermedia versions 
of the National Cancer Institute's Physician Data Query (PDQ) 
statements. The Hypermedia PDQ Project is supported, in part, by
grants from the National Cancer Institute and the National Action 
Plan on Breast Cancer.

In this release, we have provided some unique enhancements to 
these PDQ statements, designed specifically to assist our
1) Links to full abstracts for all journal articles cited.
2) hypermedia glossary of terms for the "patient-oriented" statements

| WWW: http://bioinformatics.weizmann.ac.il/hotmolecbase/
| E-mail: lvrebhan@weizmann.weizmann.ac.il

HotMolecBase is an easily accessible database containing informations about 
molecules that are thought to be involved in diseases. The informations include 
a list of diseases where the particular molecule is thought to be involved, the
cellular functions, a list of agonists and antagonists, some key references and
email addresses of contact persons. Since it is a very new site, it contains
a limited number of entries. But if you would like to contribute to it, and if 
you think your own molecule of interest should be included in HotMolecBase,
email to "lvrebhan@weizmann.weizmann.ac.il". 


7 | World Wide Web Journal of Biology

| WWW: http://www.epress.com/w3jbio/
| E-mail: editor@epress.com

The World Wide Web Journal of Biology is a peer-reviewed journal free to all 
readers.The journal features interactive molecules, movies, sound files, color 
graphics, 3D coordinates, links to medline from references, links to databases, 
resources and much more. http://epress.com/w3jbio

8 | "Confronting Cancer Through Art"

| WWW: http://www.oncolink.upenn.edu/ccta/
| E-mail:  sfrye@math.upenn.edu

Anyone who has ever been touched by cancer should check out 
"Confronting Cancer Through Art" an online exhibition at
This is a unique exhibition that gives vision and voice to the 
experiences of all those who have confronted cancer. It includes 
nearly 200 works by 112 artists. 

Many of the artists are cancer survivors who used their art as a means
of coping with or expressing their feelings about their illness. Others 
created their works in response to the illness of a family
member or friend. 

When the University of Pennsylvania Cancer Center and the Arthur Ross
Gallery put out a call for submissions, they didn't know what to expect. 
Because the response was so great, they expanded the exhibition to a
second gallery. Still, it was not enough to accommodate all of the works 
that deserved to be seen. Thus, the idea for a Virtual Gallery was born. 

Many of the works are also on display at the Arthur Ross and Meyerson
Hall galleries on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania in
Philadelphia, PA. The exhibition runs through August 25. It is free
and open to the public. 


9 | ImMunoGeneTics database

| WWW: http://imgt.cnusc.fr:8104

  (LIGM-DB annotated sequences)


IMGT is an international database specializing in Immunoglobulins, 
T-cell receptors (LIGM-DB) and MHC molecules (MHC/HLA-DB) of all 
species, initiated and coordinated by Marie-Paule Lefranc, of the 
University Montpellier II and CNRS, Montpellier (France). 
IMGT is produced in collaboration between LIGM (Laboratoire 
d'ImmunoGénétique Moléculaire, Montpellier, France), EMBL-EBI 
(Hinxton, UK), IFG (Institut für Genetik, Köln, Germany), 
ICRF (Imperial Cancer Research Fund, London, UK) and BPRC 
(Biological Primate Research Centre, Rijswijk, The Netherlands).

IMGT comprises LIGM-DB (17 888 Immunoglobulin and T cell receptor 
sequences of which 6 804 are fully annotated, from
78 different species), MHC/HLA-DB (class I and class II Human 
Leucocyte Antigen alignments) and DNAPLOT (a tool for
Immunoglobulin, T-cell receptor and Major Histocompatibility 
Complex molecules sequence analysis). LIGM-DB fully
annotated sequences are also available at the EBI WWW server : 


10 | Welcome to Scottish Enterprise Biotechnology Group

| WWW: http://www.sebiotech.org.uk/biotech/
| E-mail: tony@COMMUNICATA.CO.UK 

You are invited to visit the Scottish Biotechnology Group site 
the definitive site for information on Biotechnology companies in 
Scotland. The site provides a convenient way to disseminate
current information of interest to companies, research institutions
and individuals with an interest in the biotechnology industry in

Those interested in finding potential partners for R&D, manufacture 
and testing within the biotechnology industry should visit
this site.

If you find the site to be of interest a hypertext link to the site

12 | Organising Medical Networked Information 

| WWW: http://omni.ac.uk/

I would like to draw your attention to the OMNI project. Sue Welsh, 
a librarian at The National Institute for medical Research,
London is guiding a collaborative effort to build a database of 
evaluated Internet sites providing high quality information for
Medicine and Bioscience. The location and a concise summary and 
evaluation of the quality of the data of the sites are

The address is :                http://omni.ac.uk

The present database has some sort of British penchant but otherwise 
is highly recommendable as a starting point for Internet
searches in the Medical / Bioscience field.
